Sure, you could declare a regular Spanish major or minor, but with Latin American Studies you can:
- Become just as fluent in Spanish.
- Spend the summer or semester in Latin America studying, volunteering or completing an internship.
- Experience an array of courses from multiple disciplines including economics, nursing, geography, art history, math, religion, history, and anthropology.
- Enjoy countless opportunities to gain personal and in-depth knowledge of Latin America and Latinos/Hispanics in the U.S.
- Fulfill many, if not all, of your general or liberal education requirements through LAS electives and core courses.
- Prepare for a career in nonprofit, education, health care, law, journalism, international business or any other field in which knowledge of Spanish and Latin America can be an asset.
At UW-Eau Claire we believe in The Power of AND. Let LAS be your AND.
